any chance...

Post#1 by feng » 28 Feb 2012, 16:29

hi all!

is there any chance to make the download and installation simple and easy with one key?


for example, people can go to an internet address and download porteus latest file

and then, they can choose to install which drive where they want to boot from, either a hard drive or a usbpen

i know there`re lots of FAQ, but for those users of ms windows, it aint easy, still.

Unetbootin should help you about this task :) but you will need the original ISO as we were not added to available distro list.

Just by curiosity, from which operating system you want to install Porteus ?

For windows, a new installer would have to be written. I could do this but am sorely lacking in the time needed to make anything reliable enough for windows users. For linux, it wouldn't be too tough to make a generic linux installer that downloads the latest ISO and installs it to whichever drive you choose.
